In have Win2K, and when i go START->HELP from the desktop i get the following error

hh.exe Application Error

The instruction at "0x5d3303f6" referenced memory at "0x5d8984f0". The memory could not be "read".

When i try and debug it, the following appears in the VC++ debugger


Unhandled exception in hh.exe HHCTRL.OCX: 0xC0000005: Access Violation

I get a similar error when i try and use my MSDN library.

I have tried deleting my hh.dat file, but it makes no difference.

Does anyone know why i cant use any of my help files (this included Word, Excel etc..)


System: AMD700,512MB,Voodoo 3 2000 PCI, Win2k, Office XP

Perhaps this:

Otherwise, you may need to re-install IE or install a newer version of IE.  It's possible your existing copy is trashed.

Go to start  |  run   and type   sfc.exe /scannow

Sometimes installing another version of the MSDN Library corrupts the Hhcolreg.dat file. This has been known to happen more frequently when the MSDN Library is installed from a network location.
 
Try manually uninstalling the MSDN Library.
